Mental Health First Aid Training 
 
At least one in four people in the UK are affected by a mental health condition at some point in their life. 
 
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is an internationally recognised training course designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health and provide help on a first aid basis. Everyone on an Adult MHFA course is taught a set of skills which enables them to support someone experiencing mental health issues. 
 
Each and every MHFA course is delivered by one of our quality assured instructors who has attended the seven day instructor training programme accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health. 
 
The course will: 
 
Give a deeper understanding of the issues that impact on and relate to people’s mental health 
Teach practical skills that can be used every day, including being able to spot the signs and symptoms of mental health issues and feel confident guiding people towards appropriate support. 
 
"I just wanted to say thank you for such a great course. I have had some serious mental health issues myself and since then I have always wanted to try to do my bit to help others going through similar experiences. You and Richard have given me the tools to be able to do that now - so thank you. I will read the manual cover to cover! 
 
It was also lovely to be on a course with such great people. On a more personal note, I think that the way you and Richard delivered the training was brilliant. Thank you so much" Peter, Southern Water
